The Water Anchor “W'anchor” is a specialized, retrievable, water-based system to allow forward progress down canyon. When traditional anchors run slim, but you find yourself with an abundance of water along with accompanying geometry, the W'anchor may be suitable for deployment. Rigging the W'anchor at otherwise troublesome drops unlocks a unique system to help the team move down canyon. Extremely fast retrieval afterwards helps avoid wasting time standing around cold and wet.
